CGI Federal Inc. has been awarded a $15 million contract from the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) Office of Environmental Information as part of the company’s goal to shift to 80 percent of its computing to the cloud by 2015.
EPA’s National Computing Center (NCC) plans to build an agency-wide hybrid cloud environment as part of the three-year plan. CGI will serve as the external enterprise cloud provider and will provide technical architecture and transition support.
Toni Townes-Whitley, Senior Vice-President, CGI said, “With this modernization initiative, the EPA is accelerating the benefits of cloud computing across the enterprise. With their vision of moving up to 20 percent of their environment to the cloud in the first year—and then 30 percent in years two and three—the EPA is setting an impressive pace for cloud adoption. Their plan will reduce the in-house maintenance burden while ensuring they can seamlessly meet EPA program requirements with fast, flexible, affordable, and secure solutions.”
